Organised by La Strada International, Freedom Collaborative and Global Alliance against Traffic in Women
Asian migrants are increasingly recruited to work in Europe. Recent research by La Strada International and GAATW shows that many Asian migrant workers end up in low-paid jobs in Europe, where they are not properly protected against serious forms of exploitation, and risk to fall prey to human trafficking or forced labour.
Questions to be discussed during this webinar are:
– How are Asian migrants recruited and in which vulnerable sectors do they work?
– What are the exploitative practices and the main challenges to access rights?
– How to ensure more awareness about the exploitative practices for Asian Migrants?
– How to ensure better protection of Asian migrants in Europe in practice?
